Welcome to the NASA Audio Collection. This collection is administered and maintained by the Houston Audio Control Room, at the NASA Johnson Space Center. The purpose of this collection is to make available the historic audio record of the history of Human Spaceflight at NASA, in an easily accessible and open manner.
The audio contained in this collection has been digitized from original reel-to-reel tapes of varying format. Many tapes are the originals, from over 50 years ago. The original file format used to digitize and archive these historic audio tapes is WAV, at 48kHz / 24 bit. This WAV file is posted here, in the collection. Derivative formats are provided by the Internet Archive.
Audio will be added to this collection as it is digitized. For requests regarding which missions are added, please email the Lead Audio Engineer at the Houston Audio Control Room, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
